Red Brick Dream
Andy Partridge/XTC Lyrics


Red brick dream
Windows scream
As the rusting north star shines above
And drops it's iron beams
Crashing down upon the rooves of swindon town

I heard the engine's dying breath
Castles and kings all starved to death
I dropped the coronation cup
Sshh, please don't wake them up from
Red brick dream

Red brick dream
Buttons gleam
By the light of the furnace pouring
Molten memories
Splashing down upon the rooves of swindon town

The men of muscle piston rods
Who forged the horses of the gods
The made the town a set of chains
And sleeping it remains in
Red brick dream

This would’ve been a great intro to
The Big Express and a perfect set up
for Wake Up.
